On a Dark Wing by Jordan Dane Review

Name: On a Dark Wing
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: December 27th, 2011

Much thanks to Netgalley and Harlequin for giving me an ARC copy of this book!

The choices I had made led to the moment when fate took over. I would learn a lesson I wasn't prepared for. And Death would be my willing teacher.

Five years ago, Abbey Chandler cheated Death. She survived a horrific car accident, but her "lucky" break came at the expense of her mother's life and changed everything. After she crossed paths with Death—by taking the hand of an ethereal boy made of clouds and sky—she would never be normal again.

Now she's the target of Death's ravens and an innocent boy's life is on the line. When Nate Holden—Abbey's secret crush—starts to climb Alaska's Denali, the Angel of Death stalks him because of her.

And Abbey finds out the hard way that Death never forgets.

My Review:
I really really wanted to like this book, but for some reason I could just not get into it. It was definitely a slow struggle reading this book, and once I finished it I was glad to be done.

When I first heard about this book and I read the plot description it seemed awesome! I thought, however, this book would go a certain way, but it went a totally different direction that I did not see at all.

At first, I was really captivated by this novel. The plot seemed really interesting and in the first few chapters I was really enjoying this novel. But, halfway through this book I seemed to hit a road block and it was really hard for me to finish this one.

I was not really a huge fan of the main character Abbey. At first, I was really interested by her and I was excited to see her character development throughout this book, but as the story progressed I was sad to see how her storyline progressed.

Overall, this book just didn't work for me. I just couldn't connect with the characters or the plot which made it really hard for me to get through. That being said, this book was very well written and I hope to see other books written by this author!

My Rating: Two out of Five Stars


  1. I've heard reviews about this book saying that this book started out really good but ended up pretty meh much like you said in your review. I also have an ARC of this book and I'm seriously thinking about whether to read it or not. Anyhow, great review! :)
